Rockstar has given fans another taste of the highly-anticipated Grand Theft Auto V. According to Gamespot, the company has unleashed another piece of artwork from the forthcoming video game. Although the image doesn’t give fans of the franchise much to chew on, it should be enough to tide folks over until next month.
The image, which has been dubbed “Pest Control,” shows a pair of men wearing gas masks and armed with automatic weaponry exiting a van. The fictional clothing store Anna Rex, which was featured in both Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, is seen in the background. While the image is kind of cool, fans have been hoping for something a bit more substantial to come rocketing down the promotional pipeline.
Subscribers to the magazine Game Informer can expect to see plenty of Grand Theft Auto V coverage in the upcoming December issue. Beyond that, it’s unclear when more information about the game will made available to the general population.
According to the Examiner, Rockstar could release the title next March. The game is currently being developed by Rockstar North, the studio responsible for crafting previous entries in the long-running video game series.
While it’s believed that the game will arrive sometime during the first quarter of 2013, some analysts believe that Grand Theft Auto V may ultimately miss its rumored March release window. Robert W. Baird analyst Colin Sebastian is one individual who remains skeptical of the proposed street date.
“By no means am I convinced that it will miss March, but there are a couple of factors to consider. One, we haven’t heard anything definitive from the company on release timing,” Sebastian explained. “Second, retailers typically would want 4-6 months lead time to prepare for a launch as large as GTA, and from [what] I understand they haven’t heard anything. Third, Rockstar rightly prioritizes game quality over release date, and this dynamic could shift timing.”
